    It "gives" the same reason why there's other channels that are also on Uverse, are NOT on D*...just like there's channels on D*, that are NOT on Uverse - different carriage agreements. Same reason why some channels are in HD on Uverse, but NOT on D*, & visa-versa - there's only been umpteen posts here that discuss these differences in detail.

    eg: on a couple of recent adds...RIDE TV ONLY got added to Uverse, but Hallmark Drama got added ONLY on D*

    I sense DirecTV (and now that it is owned by AT&T) made a decision to not pay however many cents, per subscriber, and for its millions of subscribers, to carry Military History.

    It may be a similar decision with all those multiscreens of the suites of MTV, VH1, CMT, and BET.

    I am in Michigan. Wayne County. County seat is Detroit. Comcast, for example, has never carried Boomerang. (Not here.) It has been available on DirecTV (now AT&T’s DirecTV) since 2000.

    What may best explain this is the allocated budget, specifically for carried programming (the channel lineup), of a given cable-television provider.

    Except for their systems in Atlanta, GA & a (VERY) few systems owned by other cable co. they bought out, it's never been carried anywhere else...& actually it was recently dropped from all those Atlanta systems. So I can safely say, it's all but gone from ALL Comcast systems.
    Same goes for CNNI on Comcast.

    It is a throwaway SD channel that just recycles old History channel documentaries. There is no new content.

    There is a channel called History Vault that has the same content and more without commercials. It is $5 a month.
